Gluten free whole wheat flour alternative-your advice please

Main Line Tracey | Jan 15, 2013 06:09 AM

Hello! I recently started an anti-allergen elimination diet and gluten is out. I purchased a flour blend but my pancakes and baked goods are turning out a bit gummy and they don't have the depth and earthiness that whole wheat flour used to give me. The blend consists of white rice flour, tapioca, and potato flour.

There are so many alternative flours out there: sorghum, chestnut, millet, almond, coconut, brown rice flour, sweet potato, etc. I hate to purchase bag after bag of flour, only to find that they don't work and I've spent a mint. We have no nut restrictions. Is there a mixture that you would recommend as a whole wheat flour alternative?
